NEW! 542. Silver Rings

Using sterling and fine silver sheet and wire, create rings with cabochon-set stones and embellishments... or simple rings with the focus on the bezel-set stone! We'll start by making a silver ring band, learning to saw, file, solder and polish. Then continue using those skills to create a bezel setting for a cabochon stone. Rim thoses stones with twist wire or beaded wire, if you choose, or learn to use the shot plates for other unique options. Materials are available for purchase from the instructor during class, estimated cost $20 to $30 per ring depending on the size, or you may bring your own silver stock and stone. All the tools and equipment are in the studio to use during class. Enthusiastic beginners are welcome, but jewelry fabrication experience with sawing and soldering is helpful.
